DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY - A stunning GRADE II LISTED BUILDING with fantastic POTENTIAL and SPACE both inside and out, the plaque above the front door says "B.C. 1803", which was the date when the owner of Owston Hall, Mr. B. Cooke, acquired the farm for his estate. Research has shown that the property existed during the English Civil War!
The property boasts incredible scope and ample living space throughout and is a perfect family home. With there being a sizeable garden wrapping around the whole of the property, it creates a fantastic area for children playing, al fresco dining evenings or even the avid gardener!
Beginning on the ground floor, it starts at the welcoming entrance hallway which leads through to the first set of stairs rising to the first floor. The doorway to the left is to the bright and airy dining room and the room to the right is the large private drawing room with windows to the rear, side and front gardens.
The main focal point of this room is the dark oak carved fireplace, installed by the previous owners. Further down the hall is the sitting room with dual aspect windows, a log burning stove and a door revealing a second staircase to the first floor.
From here is the traditional and characterful kitchen diner and a smaller utility room with two doors - one leading to the back garden, the other to a fantastic sun room overlooking the pretty rear garden. This a great well-lit room which is a perfect space to get peace and quiet, which would also make an excellent playroom.
The first floor can be accessed via two sets of stairs and consists of a large open feature point stair case and hallway, five double bedrooms, a family bathroom and family shower room. The smallest room has been used by the owners as a study.
Externally the property benefits from having a vast amount of parking to the front and side, gardens wrapping around the diameter of the house being minimally over looked and a barn which is currently used as a workshop, but would lend itself to a whole variety of uses.
Outline planning permission has been applied for a 3/4 bedroom barn conversion, which makes it a fantastic opportunity to have a separate annex and/or living space. Being on a spacious plot size, it screams potential. With many original features still being here and the amount of space lending itself to do so much more, it really is worth taking a look at this fantastic building.
Situated in Old Skellow, on the edge of Skellow which benefits from a great range of shops, amenities and supermarkets. The A1 motorway lies within a few minutes' drive away which also gives brilliant access to other links such as the M62, M18 and M1. It is also conveniently located in terms of train access, with Adwick-Le-Street train station being around a five minute drive away.
